My day couldn't get any more sad
Unless I were at the movies
And I wonder now, oh, if my heart will take
Into a snowy deep after the news of your sleep

Childhood is a kingdom where no one ever dies

Oh, haunted willow, won't you melt me
I've been missing you like my disappearing tattoos
That wasn't water-proofed
I know you leaked in the rain
You weren't meant for this terrain

Childhood is a kingdom where no one ever dies

Childhood is a kingdom where no one ever dies
Oh, I'm going to wear a black dress soon
And get lifted in the afternoon like a helium balloon

Childhood is a kingdom where no one ever dies
Oh, childhood

    General CommentFilled in the missing words based on careful listening. Almost but not 100% sure of correctness.
